Colibri, A Sonnet


Beautiful Colibri, your fluttering wings
so rapid, it looks like you are still in air…
drinking with your long sleek beak
forbidden nectar from the honey tree.
You fly from tree to tree, care not who
you hurt with your buzz of love.
Humming bird so lovely you are, totally
amoral, I will catch you one day, put you in
a cage, serve you sweet honey from a jar,
the one in the fridge with a picture of
a bee, and you will buzz for me alone
till I set you free….if I ever do.
For I too need to hear the sound of love
and dream of being totally immoral.
